Dimmingsdale & The Churnet Valley have inspired  3 generations of our family. As a family and a business, we are committed to preserving and enhancing the environment around us.

Nestled in Dimmingsdale in the beautiful Churnet Valley is the Ramblers Retreat, a family-run Country Tearoom.

Since 1981, our family has offered a range of traditional, homemade meals and snacks to visitors to this beautiful valley. Whether you choose to eat in our cosy snug, airy conservatory or our beautiful woodland gardens, we guarantee you’ll find the atmosphere extremely homely, warm and welcoming.

And as well as enjoying a delicious meal, you can also take in the beauty and tranquillity of Dimmingsdale by strolling through the valley using one of the established woodland walks.
